It's rare to see the same meat and seafood preparations twice on Wat U Makin Jamaican's menu. To create the menu's varied dishes, the culinary team curries goat and stews it with potatoes, simmers beef oxtails with herbs, and marinates pork in savory jerk sauce. Still more techniques flavor the restaurant's seafood dishes—chefs pan-fry fish in housemade escovitch sauce, and pan-sear shrimp before stir-frying it with veggies and jerk spices, which are named for Jamaica's biggest bullies. Vegetarians aren't left out on Wat U Makin's menu—its vegetarian corner includes a meat-free burger made from sautéed onions, rice, and black beans. For a perfect complement to the zesty entrees, customers can try one of the restaurant's tropical-themed drinks, such as fruit punch, pineapple soda, and smoothies.
